Mumbai, Nov. 13 (ANI): A Mumbai-based property dealer has revealed that Lashkar operative David Coleman Headley had approached him for a flat in the city, but he declined to deal with him as Headly was not furnishing the necessary documents.
"When my staff told me that he is not giving necessary documents required for buying a flat, I immediately cancelled the deal. He began arguing with me, telling me that you are a broker and mind the money I am giving, he said I can convince the owner of the flat, but I declined," Sunny Singh told reporters.Singh said he was not aware of the Headley's background until he saw his picture at a news channel.
"I have been hearing this name in news for sometime but today when I saw his picture in a news channel I realised that it is the same David I dealt with," he added.
Headley was arrested by the FBI in October for plotting a major terror attack in India. He was arrested along with Pakistani-born Canadian citizen Tahawwur Hussein Rana.
Meanwhile, police in New Delhi raided a hotel in Paharganj area where Headley is believed to have stayed. (ANI)
